`A technique of growing plants in nutrient solution”. Hydroponics literally means water-working or water-activation. It is a cultivation technique for growing plants in highly oxygenated, nutrient enriched water, rather than soil. The nutrient solution and its management are the cornerstone for a successful hydroponics system. The function of a hydroponics nutrient solution is to supply the plant roots with water, oxygen and essential mineral elements in soluble form. In soil, biological decomposition breaks down...
Your hydroponic growing media should do several things: wick and retain water, provide a stable pH, drain well and not fall apart so your system stays clean. Quick Plug North America offers the hydroponic grower several product lines with these characteristics. Our FlexiPlug® and FlexiTray® growing medium is optimized for all industry standard systems: Nutrient Film Technique, Ebb & Flow, Deep Water Raft, Aeroponic, and Drip. We have been working with hydroponic and aquaponic companies all over the...

Accuracy and ease of use make SM300 Soil Moisture Sensors well suited to irrigation applications. Readings can be used to optimise irrigation scheduling, or the SM300 can be installed as part of an automatic irrigation system. The sensor`s compact size allows it to be installed in plant pots or grow bags.
Supplying water used to assist in the growing of agricultural crops, maintenance of landscapes, and revegetation of disturbed soils is best done by lightweight and sustainable thermoplastic pipe and fitting systems.
Increase your yields while reducing costs at your growing operation. In-Situ’s easy-to-use equipment keeps your hatchery running smoothly, even in harsh conditions. Our solutions simplify aquaculture management, boosting efficiency through faster, more accurate monitoring.
The Aquaculture industry is one of the fastest growing segments in the agricultural industry accounting for over 1.13 billion dollars in the USA alone. However, this industry is suffering with several water quality challenges requiring sustainable aquaculture water treatment solutions to enhance fish health, and population yield while meeting environmental discharge regulations. The challenges facing aquaculture companies include emerging growth rates of specific bacteria and viruses, water usage, and environmental...
Sowing directly in Greenplugs is becoming more and more popular. This method makes it easier to grade seedlings according to size at an early stage and to remove any plugs in which the seed hasn’t germinated. This may optimise the propagation process and the use of space. Transplanting or repotting seedlings grown in plugs moreover often takes less time than transplanting seedlings grown in trays, and it involves less risk of losses.
Paper pots and glued plugs are very suitable for rooting and raising plants from cuttings. Plugs with pre-dibbled or pre-drilled plant holes are clearly winning ground. And that’s not surprising: they save time and labour. Ever more cuttings are being produced and rooted in areas with a favourable climate and low wages, such as Africa. To minimise the costs of air transport, the plants are loaded into the planes as small as possible, and in as many as possible per tray. The very tender, lightly rooted...

Citrus fruits belong to rutaceus, they started 20 millions of years ago in the Asiatic South East. They grow in subtropical and tropical climates. The world production is estimated in approximately 100 millions of tons.
Common applications in the agriculture industries include cold chain monitoring, quality assurance, monitoring pest control effectiveness, temperature and humidity profiling crops, wine growing, and many more. We supply the suppliers with the most reliable selection of temperature and humidity data loggers anywhere.
Research project where no chemicals are used in water treatment and water is only added to replace any evaporated water. The fish are grown in a tank with closed water circuit. The waste produced by fish are utilized by growing algae. The grown algae are returned for fish feed. Our method allows efficient and environmentally friendly fish farming that can be placed near the consumer.
The plants that we grow in our gardens are very demanding in terms of their hydration and nutrition needs.If we add to this that in many cases the weather conditions do not favour a defined variety, it turns the garden into a crop that requires a lot of attention.
Global aquaculture production has been steadily growing in recent decades, increasingly contributing fish and other edible aquatic organisms of commercial importance entering national, regional and international markets. The growing demand for such products has stimulated the development and expansion of aquaculture production systems both on land and in all water bodies.
Popularly known as ‘The King of Herbs’, Basil is native to India. It is the culinary herb from the botanical family of 'Ocimum Bailicum’ and is available in more than 160 varieties worldwide. Basil plant is one of the most grown indoor plants that can eas
Why regulation of your greenhouse climate is important.
As a horticultural entrepreneur, you understand better than anyone that the greenhouse climate has an immense influence on the condition of your crops. Air temperature, humidity, CO2 content and the proper balance of growing lights are essential conditions for a healthy and vigorous crop. By regulating your greenhouse climate in a proper manner, you reduce the chance of disease and plagues and you ensure the quality of your production. Moreover, you save...
